Predominantly coastal, the Park has some of the most beautiful coastline in the UK, Offshore islands, the largest of which is Skomer which is Internationally known for the sea birds and seal populations, the waters around Skomer are one of only two Marine Nature Reserves in the British Isles. The other islands are Skokholm, Ramsey, Grasholm and Caldey,which are all worth a visit and are also full of bird life. The Coastal path covers high cliffs, to long sandy beaches, harbours, dunes and mud flats. In contrast the Gwaun Valley is a delightful area for walking beside the river, which rises, in the Preseli Hills, from where you get amazing views of the coastline. There are also many wonderful walks in the Preseli Hills.


Come to Pembrokeshire in the Spring, the carpet of wild flowers will amaze you, around Strumble Head, also in the hills around Newport. Spring/Summer: you can spend hours watching birds from Puffins to Peregrins and most sea birds in between. Autumn: Beneath the cliffs there are a number of inaccessible beaches were seals give birth to their pups in the autumn months. The Chapel therefore is an ideal base for bird watching, walking, sailing, canoeing, or simply relaxing and enjoying the scenery and beautiful beaches.

Had a great time. The Chapel contains everything you could possibly need. It's a shame HomeAway don't live up to the same standards - they were a nightmare!

Good Property in a Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

We've just finished a seven day stay in this character property, and thoroughly enjoyed it. There is plenty of room in the well-furnished living area, and a well-equipped kitchen. There was often something going on in the harbour to watch from the balcony. The main bedroom upstairs was light and large. We did not make use of the other two bedrooms so cannot really comment.

The area itself has many great walks. We found Dinas Island to be the best - take the lower path at the fork to get a great view of a small island covered in birds.

Unfortunately, it took us until the last night to discover The Old Bakehouse in Upper Fishguard, but we had a great dinner there. Very tasty food, fancy but plentiful, and very well priced. Note that this relates to the evening menu, which is quite different to the daytime one.

We would have absolutely no hesitation in coming here again if we wanted to stay in the same area, but just for completeness here are some minor things to be aware of:

- We didn't realise that a "..." on OwnersDirect meant there was more information if you hover with the mouse. This meant we missed the bit about no towels if travelling from the UK. Bath towels are surprisingly hard to find in Fishguard!

- The walk to Upper Fishguard is short (about half a mile), but very steep, and there is nowhere to eat in the lower town in the evening. That said, there is a nice pub nearby.

- The information folder needs updating as some of it relates to equipment that is no longer there.

- All the table lamps are operated by a switch on the stairs (silly, but it took us a while to figure it out!)

Really, these are just minor quibbles. It's a lovely property.

Beautiful views and well situated for the coast

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous week at Llanfor with something for everyone from our 12 year old to our 80 year old in and around Fishguard. Beautiful views and stunning coastal walks, as well as activities on the doorstep such as kayaking. Llanfor provided a comfortable base where we felt very much at home.
